Let’s get YOUTUBE to change their monetization policy!!

This petition had 48 supporters

Hi. I recently got this email from YouTube:

Today we are announcing changes to the YouTube Partner Program (YPP). While our goal remains to keep the YPP open to as many channels as possible, we recognize we need more safeguards in place to protect creator revenue across the YouTube ecosystem.

What's Changing
Under the new eligibility requirements announced today, your YouTube channel  is no longer eligible for monetization because it doesn’t meet the new threshold of 4,000 hours of watchtime within the past 12 months and 1,000 subscribers. As a result, your channel will lose access to all monetization tools and features associated with the YouTube Partner Program on February 20, 2018 unless you surpass this threshold in the next 30 days. Accordingly, this email serves as 30 days notice that your YouTube Partner Program terms are terminated.
One of YouTube’s core values is to provide anyone the opportunity to earn money from a thriving channel. Creators who haven’t yet reached this new threshold can continue to benefit from our Creator Academy, our Help Center, and all the resources on the Creator Site to grow their channels. Once your channel reaches the new threshold, it will be reviewed to make sure it adheres to our policies and guidelines, and if so, monetization will be re-enabled.

The YouTube Team


i feel this is very unfair to the YouTube hobbyists (like me). Is it really that much work for Google to maintain low hanging fruit accounts (like mine)?

I need views on my videos and subscribers to my channel. Please help me by doing the following:
-Click on one (or more ) of the videos below.

-Subscribe to my YouTube channel

-Share this petition whichever way you can (Facebook,Twitter or any other way you can think of).

Please help me, and others like me, retain our YouTube status after years of posting and promoting our videos.

Thank you
